Manufacturers use a chemical called hexane to break down the seeds
and extract the remainder of the oil. DesolventizingTo strip any hexane from the seeds, manufacturers heat the seeds (canola meal) a third time at 203-239℉ using steam exposure. Oil ProcessingManufacturers refine the extracted oil with various methods, such as exposure to phosphoric acid, filtration through acid-activated clays, and steam distillation. To make shortening or margarine, manufacturers use a process called hydrogenation, where molecules of hydrogen are pumped into the canola oil to alter the chemical structure. The hydrogenation process extends the shelf life and allows the oil to become solid at room temperature, but it also creates artificial trans fats
. Trans fats aren’t like natural fats found in whole foods like meat, fish, and dairy. Nutrient Profile of Canola OilFarmer pouring fresh-pressed canola oil after processingCanola oil isn’t a rich source of nutrients. One tablespoon (15ml) of canola oil provides 124 calories and 12% of the reference daily intake (RDI) for vitamin E and K. Aside from E and K, canola oil is devoid
of nutrients. It’s often touted as a healthy oil due to its low level of saturated fat. Canola oil has around 7% saturated fat, 28% polyunsaturated fat, and 64% monounsaturated fat.
